How to treat seasonal asthenia through biofeedback
Ah, February is here, and it seems like winter will not go away just yet… But no matter, we can also see it as a beautiful season and we can enjoy a fun snowy day outside with the kids, for example. Although not every day is an energetic one, sometimes you can feel tired and moody.
Has this ever happened to you? Do you think winter has something to do with it?
Read on below to find out more about these symptoms which may translate as seasonal asthenia.
What is seasonal asthenia?
Bad mood, chronic fatigue, and weakness… definitely everyone has experienced these feelings at least once on their own skin. Asthenia settles not only in spring but also in winter. Doctors say that adapting to the cold season is more difficult, but it is not difficult to overcome these moments. The exact cause is not known, however, a plausible explanation would be the lack of winter sunlight.
One theory is that a decrease in light exposure leads to a change in behavior. Due to the lack of vitamins during the winter, the body’s ability to resist common ailments also decreases, leading to an overload that makes us feel weak and dizzy. All this influences our brain activity, decreasing our intellectual tone.
Asthenia is described as a short-term affective disorder, that usually occurs around the same time of year, with the following symptoms:
- Loss of interest in routine activities
- Loss of concentration
It is especially common in people between the ages of 20 and 40 but has sometimes been seen in children and teenagers.
Symptoms and moods
Chronic fatigue and weakness are the first warning signs.
Another effect on winter health is exacerbating depression. Many psychologists and psychoanalysts argue that depression becomes more severe in winter as it is directly related to the light source from the sun, which can treat depression. Not only is the sky gray in winter but the day is shorter, starting at 17.00, it is already dark outside.
It also increases stress and anxiety, also due to the darkness and especially the cold. Meticulous people become the most stressed as the change of wintertime upsets their whole daily routine. The morning starts later and the evening comes earlier. Specialists also warn that switching to wintertime can affect our nutritional balance, upsetting our entire metabolism.
How to get rid of it?
There are some natural tricks that can drive away sadness and poor general conditions, known as asthenia. It is not easy for people to adapt to the wintertime, our biorhythm being disturbed to a certain extent. It will be difficult for us to fall asleep, so at least in the first few days of a new season, we will lose an hour of sleep.
Although changing the time makes you more tired than usual, doctors say that one of the most effective measures to quickly adjust to the new time is to exercise. Physical activity energizes you and makes you feel good.
Also, the main element that we must not forget in winter is vitamin C, an excellent weapon against fatigue. You can get it from certain fruits or meds.
To get over these asthenia problems more easily, here are some more ‘natural’ tips:
- Take care of yourself – go to a massage parlor, paint yourself, make yourself beautiful! It is known that this helps women even in the most difficult times, but men as well.
- Dress in brightly colored outfits – did you know that this little trick can change your mood? Always look at the beauty of your life and don’t be overwhelmed. And when you see yourself looking good in the mirror, it really helps.
- Enjoy every day of your life – if the state of apathy does not disappear, and you are getting sadder and sadder, ask for the help of a specialist. There is a very original way to combat this effect of the change of seasons, namely phototherapy – light therapy. It is important, regardless of the season, to accept ourselves as we are, to understand our body, which goes through daily changes, and to discover the smallest things in life in order to be happy.
Another option to relieve the symptoms of this seasonal asthenia would be a biofeedback therapy session. A device such as the NUCLEUS or ED-X, for example, will diagnose all the pathologies and work specifically on the troubled ones.
A PULSAR software will work into obtaining the necessary information about reactions and will delegate the needed information to the biofeedback devices, with an increased accuracy and frequency emission.
Through a session like this, the most subtle quantum frequencies of the human body are captured, creating a deeper understanding of high-precision details. You will start to feel the exact ‘details’ of the asthenia and, at the same time, a sense of relief as the device works to revitalize the body to vibrate at higher levels for better health and well-being.
Overall, don’t panic if you suffer from this seasonal asthenia, because it can be rather common among people nowadays. The trick is to understand what it is that you’re feeling, consume it and do what you can to help yourself to feel better – whether it is a daily run, a biofeedback therapy session, or a weekly spa day ☺
